For comparison, Dropbox charges $9.99 per month for 100GB. I wonder if they will lower their prices?

Having launched Google Drive just two years ago, we’re excited that so many people are now using it as their go-to place for keeping all their files. Whether it's all the footage of your kids' baseball games, the novel you're working on, or even just your grocery list for the week, we all have files that are too important to lose. Today, thanks to a number of recent infrastructure improvements, we’re able to make it more affordable for you to keep everything safe and easy to reach on any device, from anywhere.
We've lowered the price of our monthly storage plans to $1.99 for 100GB (previously $4.99), $9.99 for 1TB (previously $49.99), and $99.99 for 10TB, with even more storage available if you need it. How big is a terabyte anyway? Well, that’s enough storage for you to take a selfie twice a day for the next 200 years and still have room left over for… shall we say… less important things. Like before, storage continues to work across Drive, Gmail and Google+ Photos. And, of course, the 15GB plan remains free.
You can sign up for one of these new Google Drive storage plans at www.google.com/settings/storage. If you already pay for storage, you’ll automatically move to a better plan at no additional cost. You can visit the storage purchase page to make a change or review your account, and see the Help Center for more information on these simpler storage options.
I hope so I moved everything to Dropbox because I had 50Gb free but thay will be ending end of the year. Moved from Google which was 6 quid a month. Not much but have to watch the pennies these days.
It's my cloud backup
Got interested but Just wondering what rights such services have to my data.
Presumably if you believe the blurb the same as everyone else... none
Hmmm interesting. I've been looking for an easy solution for my parents to keep their photos backed up, yet readily available.
I've looked at Flickr, but the interface is very convoluted. This might be just the ticket.
Just looked at my Google drive and I've not filled up a quarter of the 15gb, didn't realize Google docs aren't included in the storage limit.
So where I have created lots of google documents its not actually increased my storage size!
if i ever get to 15gb i may invest in more space.
doesn't have any bandwidth limits, although files can't be any larger than 1TB in size (up from 10GB).
There is also a limit on the number of people you can share files with non-publicly.
I wonder if I could load all my data for backup on to a HDD and then mail it to Google for upload? Amazon Glacier will do this.
